Honda is committed to responsible stewardship of its land, including management of 8,200 acres in Union and Logan counties that encompass more than 500 acres of wetlands, 1,400 acres of forests and 3,000 acres of farmland. Honda manages its property to provide a rich habitat for diverse plants and animals.
Wetland areas that Honda has established throughout its property prevent excess sediments from entering watercourse in the Big Darby watershed. These wetlands also provide a rich habitat for many aquatic plants and animals.
To conserve groundwater, Honda constructed a seven-acre pond system capable of holding 22 million gallons of rainwater. By using rainwater in cooling towers, Honda reduces groundwater use by about 40 million gallons annually.
